Alistair Overeem has fought many times in his home country, the Netherlands, but he’s never throw down in the Octagon there. Well, not in front of fans at least, as on Sunday, the UFC will make its promotional debut in the European nation.
“Reem” will take on fellow heavyweight contender, and his teammate at Jackson – Wink MMA, Andrei Arlovski. It’s a pivotal fight for both men, as the winner will remain in the title shot mix.
Recently the UFC posted the video below, where Overeem shares his thoughts on returning to the Netherlands and fighting in his home country.
UFC FN 87 will take place in Rotterdam. The main card gets under way here in North America at 2 PM/ET – 11 AM/PT.
